Exclusive: Sonam Kapoor Shares The Difficulties She Faced As A Star Kid

Jahnavi Patel

When it comes to star kids, we all can sit and have a lengthy discussion over it. Where we have seen a number of them make their debut in Bollywood, not everyone has been a successful actor. It is their talent which has eventually got them more work and that’s how they have still been a part of the industry. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is one actor who has proven her talent time and again, but like every actor who has a family belonging to the film industry, she has also been questioned about having an easier way in Bollywood being Anil Kapoor‘s daughter.

We have all read about the privileges a star kid has but seldom have we spoken about the difficulties they have to face. Nobody really addresses the pressure they have. So when we recently met Sonam for an exclusive interview, we asked her about it.

This is what she had to say:

For me, the perks completely outweigh the negatives. But there are a lot of times where somebody has some beef with my father, or there are so many times where something has happened with maybe my cousin brother, aunt or uncle, and they pass judgment on me and be like ‘why should I work with this girl?’. So sometimes, that’s there. Or sometimes even people think that she has everything, we should give somebody else a chance instead, which is fine. Water finds its balance, right? So sometimes the balance is needed.

So not everything is easy for the star too, right? We know it now.
